AVOID COMMON DATA RECOVERY AND BACKUP MISTAKES

If you have been keeping up with the latest the technology news, then you probably know about the Rubrik data leak. This hack exposed customer data and shined a light on the risks associated cloud storage.

Did you know Amazon web services are launching a comprehensive data backup service solution for quicker and hassle-free data backup?

These stories highlight the need to implement a robust data recovery and back-up plan within every business.

Why, you ask?

No matter how advanced technology becomes, it is important to remember that these technologies are created and developed by human beings. We make mistakes, and these mistakes can cost an organization and affect their brand value and reputation.

It’s good to get into the habit of preparing for the worst when it comes to your sensitive data.

While it is a good practice to have a reliable data backup and recovery plan, avoid developing a plan just to say you have one. You need to build a plan to shield you from data leakage and breaches of privacy.

If you are thinking of creating a data recovery and back up plan, make sure you do not make the following mistakes.

  • BEING UNCLEAR ON THE BUSINESS OBJECTIVE:

A one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work in data recovery and backup plans. It is essential that the team knows and understands your business’s objective and data protection needs. A general backup and recovery plan will not be of help to your business in the long run.

Develop clear answers to the following questions:

  • What data is most important?
  • How much data can you afford to lose?
  • How will you cope with the downtime and loss in productivity in the event of a breach?

An ORAM Boston business management consultant will create a data backup and recovery plan based on your specific goals and budget without compromising data security.

  • NOT TESTING FOR EVERY POSSIBILITY:

Don’t build a plan to safeguard your data based on past events. You need to make certain your data is protected from malicious attacks BEFORE they happen. Test your plan against different scenarios to determine whether or not it will be effective against new attacks.

  • NOT TIMELY UPDATING THE PLAN:

You must be aware of the latest updates to data protection technologies. Businesses often fail to perform routine inspections and updates. By not updating your software, your data becomes vulnerable to a host of cyber attacks. Updates are essential to fix security patches and loopholes. An ORAM Boston business management consultant will timely and adequately perform asset and comprehensive system monitoring, and back up system tests to make sure everything is safe, secure and up-to-date.
